Diff vent tubes and where are they?

So I know where my front and tranny vent tube is, but where does the rear diff vent too and why can't i just plug it to keep water out? thanks.

The rear vent tube I believe is ziptied to your fuel filler hose.

Frankiefire702 is correct. If you pull the plastic cover down at the bottom corner you can see it...at least on the TJ..its likely the same on the yj..

you cant plug them because they create pressure while in use and you will blow out your axles seals. did you ever open up a final drive on an excavator, they have no vents and if you open it up without letting the pressure blead you will take a bath in the oil. the point is any gear on gear creates pressure and if its not vented it will find a way out unless its final drive witch is made not to vent, jason.

You could probrably extend or relocate the tubes to a higher location, maybe someone who's done it before can give you some ideas. Good luck.
